Definitely agreed. I loved Sonic Spinball back on Genesis. I want a new Mean Bean Machine too, while we're at it!

Still need to check out Frontiers at some point. Just waiting on a really good Steam sale for it.

Sonic '06 has a special place in my heart.

It's the game that finalized my divorce from the franchise. I actually really liked most of the 3D games before the PS3/X360 era with this steaming pile. It doesn't help that this was the game that gave me RRoD either.

There are many worse Sonic games than this one:

Sonic Labrynth
Sonic Free Riders
Sonic the Hedgehog on GBA
Sonic mobile games (too many to list)
Sonic Rivals 1 & 2
Sonic Game Gear titles

There's more I'm forgetting. But yeah, lazy low-hanging fruit, quickly shat out worthless article without substance beating a dead horse that's already been beaten for the past 17 years isn't enough.

Opinion piece.

And I would say that history tends to be lenient to games that aren't mainline titles and released on handhelds/secondary hardware (Kinect). We can easily acknowledge those games are bad, but you kind of expect it because they're either bad ports or spinoff titles.

As the first mainline game of gen 7, I can see some good arguments for this one being the worst.
